Though we may not know if the head coach Justin Price will coach his team on the field tonight until later today as he continues to be with his son, Jackson, who was diagnosed with leukemia last week, he has a back up plan.  If he is not able to make it, his twin brother Matt will fill in.

Kickoff is 7:30 pm with live radio, television and internet coverage over the WLAF – B & M Tires Sports Network beginning at 7 pm.
